About

Splat Space (previously known as Durham Makerspace) is a multidisciplinary workshop and hackerspace in downtown Durham. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, member-driven, member-funded organization. We are looking for crafters, engineers, mad scientists, artists, programmers, tinkerers, and makers of all kinds to join our organization.

We are a community of hackers and makers, teachers and students.  Our ultimate goal is to reach out to each other and the surrounding community to share our passion for art, technology, and innovation. Through sharing this passion, Splat Space members contribute to the technical and artistic vibrancy of Durham, and the Triangle as a whole.

If you’d like to be involved, jump right in!  If you’ve never heard of a makerspace or hackerspace before, don’t worry.  Visit our FAQ for more details, or reach out to us directly via e-mail or our Google group.  It may seem hard to believe that our only real goal is to create a community around collaboration and innovation, but it’s true!  And we want you involved, too.

Still interested? Join us for one of our monthly online meetings (until our weekly, in-person meetings resume) or request an in-person tour of Splat Space by emailing us at info@splatspace.org.  Everyone is welcome!
